How to make a fresh start with the same-old


I started blogging in 2014 and at the time I didn’t know what I was going to write about. Then slowly but surely my blog turned into one about science news, research, surveys, studies and such with a little bit of humor (how I see those news from my own perspective). I try not to take anything seriously, especially myself. No, seriously.

I have to admit that now my blog is a bit abandoned (not a bit, it’s essentially abandoned, to say the least) since I don’t have enough time to read all those science news out there. FOMO is not about me apparently. Though I try not to dismiss the thought that I will get back to my blogging some day.

I know it sounds a bit cliche but everything is inspiration to me. I know that I can’t force myself to write. At first it appears to be a tiny thought on some topic. But a few minutes later it starts turning into a huge uncontrollable flow of words that is keeping me awake until I write down every single one of them.

The thing is if I don’t write them down at that very moment, they will be gone for good and nothing can make them reborn. So every once in a while (mostly in the middle of the night) I’m facing a tough dilemma choosing between sleep deprivation because of ‘carpe diem’ and saying farewell to another hit of inspiration.

And if it just so happened that today you suddenly opened your Reader for the first time in a year (like I did two days ago), how does it feel? Do you feel guilty for abandoning your blog? And what is abandonment for you? Maybe for someone taking a one week hiatus is already abandonment.

Stay tuned.

Stay tuned, Marta. Stay tuned.
